Overview

DNN is the old State of Montana web content management software.

DNN runs in a web browser, so agencies can distribute control of their web pages to the employees who truly own the content, and not just those with the technical ability to work in HTML.

DNN (formerly called DotNetNuke) comes from the third party DNNCorp. Among the more than 500,000 government and business organizations that run the ASP.NET-based content management system are NASA, the United Nations and Bank of America.

From its freeware base DNNCorp offers licenses up to the Enterprise edition (Evoq) license held by the State Information Technology Services Division which includes elite telephone support, complete source code and SharePoint document integration.

Features

Active Directory Authentication: The DNN CMS provides Single Sign-On (SSO) using the state Active Directory (AD) credentials, which offers a high level of security, authentication, and policy control. You leverage your existing investment in Active Directory, while reducing the amount of support calls.

Web Site Security: DNN tracks all modifications to your web site and provides a full audit history. Extended page, module, and folder level permissions allow you to provide CMS users with granular rights to view and edit your web site within the CMS. The Security Center continuously feeds relevant alerts to your administrators with links to download relevant security patches.

Granular Permissions: Within the CMS, users and groups can be given permission to: view content, add child pages, add modules to a page, copy modules from one page to another, delete content from a page, export a page template, import a page template or manage page settings.

Application Integrity: Installation files are checked against the standard release files. Any inconsistencies which may impact the reliability of your web site are reported, including files that are out of date or which have been modified.

We have found this generally happens if you are editing your DNN module in "HTML" mode, and you have hard coded links and/or images within your HTML.  If you have a bad link to a website, or a image link that doesn't point to the correct DNN portal and file, DNN does not know how to resolve this, and will not open up your page for editing by just clicking the blue "Edit Page" link on the top right of your page.  The work around for this issue is to hover over the blue "Edit Page" block -- and from the pull down check the "Stay in Edit Mode" check box, and this should bring the page back into "Edit Mode" so you can continue editing and make any corrections to your HTML.   If this does not work for you, you can open a POB case with the SITSD Service Desk and we can help you resolve your issue.
